Hi loves! I’m so excited about today’s post. Have you watched the Netflix show Stranger Things? I am obsessed! Well Painted Polish made my dreams come true and released a duo polish set inspired by the show!
Painted Polish is a new-to-me indie brand that is 5 FREE, cruelty free, and made in the USA.
When I saw this duo it was instantly a must-have for me. I honestly wish Lexi (the creator of Painted Polish) would release a collection of 8 polishes all named after each episode from Season 1. If you haven’t watched Stranger Things I highly recommend you get your booty on over to the couch and turn on your Netflix!! It’s such a good show in so many ways. I can not wait until they release Season 2 (hopefully in 2017!) Meanwhile let’s take a look at this duo that I’m in love with.
THE UPSIDE DOWN
This is black base filled with multi-shaped hex ruby red glitter. It’s thick but super manageable and opaque in 2 coats. This dries down a bit dull so you will need about 2 coats of a glossy top coat to keep it glossy.
This beauty looks different depending on the lighting so I took some photos of it indoors and outdoors. I did a side by side comparison and I feel like it looks best outdoors under shade.
The glitter is amazing and you can really see it’s depth when you apply a good matte top coat. Look at that dimension!!!
MONSTER ON MIRKWOOD
This is magenta base filled with scattered holo, black holo glitter, and aqua shimmer. It’s stunning!!! I did 3 coats here for full opacity. It also dries flat so bring out the glossy top coat again.
The glitter in this is intense! Beware of the Demagorgon!
The Stranger Things Duo is currently on pre-sale until 10/20/16 and is Limited Edition so if you want these two head over to Paintedpolish.com and reserve yours! The duo retails for $20 USD.
I did a live swatch video that you can watch on my YouTube channel here:
My fave characters on Stranger Things are Dustin because he’s just adorable and Eleven because of her amazing powers!!!
Which one of these was your favorite? Who is your favorite character on Stranger Things?
